    The Wii box contains:

    -The Console itself
    -sensor bar
    -Wiimote
    -Nunchuck add-on
    -AC adapter
    -AV cable (composite :( )
    -"startup disc"
    -and the console stand


    Not sure if Wii Sports is on the startup disc, or if Wii Sports is included in its own package inside the box or something.


    edit: Bah! Beat me too it!

    While we're on Wii questions, has anyone heard if we can us an external hard drive with the Wii or not? I don't recall seeing anything in the last few months proving or disproving this rumor.

    We had one report early on saying that we should be able to, just like we should be able to use a plug and play keyboard with the system. However, we had one report contradicting it not too long ago as well. It goes back and forth a bit since it seems like Nintendo's representatives are not sure most of the times themselves. Kind of like the situation with the Region Free games, with some representatives saying there we be such then having it contradicted. We just need to sit back and wait to see what happens.

    So for $400 dollars you get:
    - Wii Console
    - Wii Console Stand
    - Wiimote
    - Nanchaku
    - Additional Wiimote
    - Additional Nunchaku
    - Classic Controller
    - Sensor Bar
    - Wii AC Adapter
    - Wii AV Cable
    - Wii Startup Disc
    - Wii Sports
    - Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    - Virtual Console Card (which get's you 2000 Wii Points)
    With those 2000 Points you have the break down of point as such:
    NES: 500
    SNES: 800
    N64: 1000
    Genesis: 800
    Turbografx 16: 600

    So you could get:
    Super Mario 64: 1000 points
    The Legend of Zelda: 500 points
    Donkey Kong: 500 points

    So basically you get:
    2 Wii titles
    1 N64 title
    2 NES titles

    Which is really a major difference to any other console for what you can get for $400 dollars.

    Well we should know by the 19th then. It is a shame about the region free games. That would have been great, even though the only game I ever imported was Jump Superstars for my DS.

    Another question for you. The wii has 512megs for internal memory. Do you need to get a memory card? Or do you need to get one when you filled up the internal 512?
